Illegal, Therefore Against the Law

5/21/2024
In which we pin down math around catching foul balls, our medical thoughts of pregnancy vs belly button rings (congrats to Cole Tucker and Vanessa Hudgens BTW), and our astute observation that betting with an illegal bookie is illegal whether it’s on baseball or not. It’s in the name. Elly continues to exceed expectations, Vaughn does not but maybe if he eats a sandwich things will kick in. Alan Rickman and Adley Rutchsman combine for Patti’s favorite homerun call. We learn that it doesn’t matter if it’s just rosin and sweat, it just can’t be on the glove. Sorry, Ronel. Jenny Cavnar and Julia Morales make broadcasting history. Valerie Perez goes full Bananaball. David Rubenstein sure looks like a man of the people and while that’s fun to watch we are holding out for definitive proof. We say “you’ve just taken this the way of belly button rings,” It’s gotta stack up to Grease and Footloose,’ and “Shoulda just taken a plane to Vegas.” Fight the man, send your game balls to Meredith, get boosted, and find us on Twitter @ncibpodcast, on Facebook @nocryinginbball, Instagram @nocryinginbball and on the Interweb at nocryinginbball.com.

Very Fact-Adjacent

5/14/2024
Welcome to West Coast Corresponded Deborah, filling in for Patti who is off celebrating our intern’s graduation. Deborah’s bfs are making up for lack of bats with all the steals. Elly continues to climb the all time steal boards, and Zack Short becomes Zack Short Stay. Willson Contreras’ injury leads to some choices about how to avoid catcher interference dangers – robo umps? Catcher’s box? How ‘bout that other Contreras, leading the Brewers? Paul Skenes debuts to comparisons to Stras, including Cutch batting lead off for both. We have to talk about an interpreter but we’d rather tell animal stories. Stay tuned for snakes, weirdly fast turtles, and a chill pelican. Hey! Make your travel plans to see the Ballers! Deborah brings some Bay Area cross-training balance to the all Boston all the time situation. We say, “general skullduggery,” “I’m glad these girls have something to scream for,” and “a butterfly flapped its wings in Argentina, y’know?” Fight the man, send your game balls to Meredith, get boosted, and find us on Twitter @ncibpodcast, on Facebook @nocryinginbball, Instagram @nocryinginbball and on the Interweb at nocryinginbball.com.

Catastrophic Seam Failure

5/7/2024
It’s the Cinco de Mayo episode where the limes are organic and the salt is Kosher. Pottymouth’s Vaughn Grissom watch is rewarded, Luis lights it up, and Maysin makes her roster. For Patti, John Means business and Jack Suwinski can sure time a hit. Josés are in trouble and just when you think he can’t achieve any more firsts, Judge gets ejected. Did you see that Luis Arráez trade coming? We sure did not. The Police Blotter teaches us the difference between Community Labor and Community Service, and maybe the MLBPA should have enlisted the moms sooner to get the unis fixed. We share a minor league beer tip, and mull the potential consequences of sticking with a rally sausage. So much crosstraining for our Boston host. We say, “It;s a hard tossup between Short and Booser,” “Sit on the Wee Green Monster, “ and ”There are two kinds of people in the world – the ones who want to know that the baseball players are going commando, and those who do not.” Fight the man, send your game balls to Meredith, get boosted, and find us on Twitter @ncibpodcast, on Facebook @nocryinginbball, Instagram @nocryinginbball and on the Interweb at nocryinginbball.com.

Defense is Sexy: The Cocktail

4/30/2024
As we lament the boyfriends we did not select for our fantasy teams, we observe Passover with mezcal. Should we have gone with Logan O’Hoppe and Joey Ortiz? Solid maybe. Mike Tauchman and the oppo Tauchos? Unrelated to the Mexico series tacos, of course. Patti’s guys Zach, Will, and Evan are crushing the multi-hit games, and Pottymouth favorite Elly is on track for a ridiculous number of stolen bases (Pottymouth’s math is SOLID.) LAD pitching is not just crazy good, it is death-defying. Josh Naylor gives us an “always gonna be a boyfriend” moment. Our Police Blotter features a few takes on the rules don’t apply to me viewpoint, as both the “victim” and the enforcer. Houston and Colorado take the Show on the road to Mexico City, and a taco tour ensues. We need a study done on dad strength vs. hamate surgery superpowers.

Boosers, Closers, and the Yeet

4/23/2024
Kenley Jansen and Craig Kimbrel are climbing to the top of the all time saves list so the takeaway is don’t yeet the ball from the last out. Looking at you, Colton “more cowbell” Cowser. Andrew hits homer #300, Adley hits grand slam #1, and Josh hits his head. On purpose. Neto can’t get a day off, Oswaldo can but Pottymouth says please don’t – or maybe yes? Elly remains good at baseball, and Patrick is finally off the IL. Patti loves the collaborative “people’s celly” of the BAL hydration station – because there’s no “I” in Team. Pottymouth considers a Booser jersey, and a game day on a lazy river. We say, “big-ass leg bone,” “that sounded a little dirty,” and “”Jinxarella.” Fight the man, send your game balls to Meredith, get boosted, and find us on Twitter @ncibpodcast, on Facebook @nocryinginbball, Instagram @nocryinginbball and on the Interweb at nocryinginbball.com.

If We Took a Holliday

4/16/2024
Our first visit to OPACY this season was an anticipated debut, a miracle of (not)rain, and a much heralded yet underwhelming Jackson vs Jackson smackdown. And lots of attention to the number seven. Elly has us considering a road trip to CIN, and Vaughn makes us think Worcester is nice this time of year. Zach has six runs to his credit in only one game, but the wrong direction. Spencer is down for the count but now we know more about internal braces, so there’s that. Brianna Wakefield’s knuckleball is our favorite pitch of the week. Julio Urias is buried in misdemeanors of his own making, and Ohtani’s interpreter apparently used his powers for evil. Venezuela hosts their 14th annual Women’s Baseball Championship and prepares for Thunder Bay. And we’re off to cross train with hockey. We say “Lions, just lions, all the time.

Bullies, Bastards, and Boneheads

4/9/2024
We workshop the LMB acronym to account for the Mexican League signing players of questionable character. We aren’t just yanking Verdugo’s chain, we are teaching you valuable vocabulary in multiple languages. We review your four options when you catch a home run ball during a game, starting with It Belongs To You. A little over a week in and our guys with slow starts are getting the bats in gear. We’ve got home runs bouncing off gloves and walls, we’ve got new nicknames (Turn and Burn O’Hearn!), and platelet infusions. Elly impresses off the field too, conducting his first press conference all in English. Wish wish Stephen Strasburg well on his retirement and as Nats fans we thank him for his service. Pottymouth turns our attention to Baseball United, the Dubai-based program that is attracting lots of attention and dollars from former MLB greats, and now Ronald Acuña Jr as well. We remain suspicious. Shane and Spencer, just this Saturday, join the ranks of seriously injured pitchers and the MLBPA and MLB argue over the role of the pitch clock in all of this. Compton’s MLB Youth Academy hosts the BFA Women’s College Club Baseball Championships. Patti and Pottymouth got up early Saturday morning to make friends with Yankee fans for an important cause. We participated in a live stream marathon “Pinstripes for a Cause” to help raise money for the World Parkinson Coalition. If you want to see us on coffee instead of craft beer, we start at 1:30 into the stream. Please consider adding your donation and add “Pinstripes for a Cause” or No Crying in Baseball to the notes.

Spikes

4/2/2024
Welcome to Season 8 of No Crying in Baseball! Join us as we laugh, fight, make (probably) terrible predictions, and drink beer from the North (and the northeast). Pottymouth is team Jeff, and Patti is team Rhys and everything gets back to Dustin and Manny. We talk Opening Day – Did Patti write the talking points for the new Os ownership? She’s definitely shopping for a Maryland Tough Baltimore Strong tee shirt. Tyler is Pottymouth’s new best friend and she is feeling good about her Oswaldo and Chourio picks and already lamenting Royce. A’s fans did what A’s fans do best. We love that the TEX World Series rings have hidden leather from winning baseballs (and a map!) but are a little worried about the ring tops getting lost.

What Did Shohei Know and When Did He Know It?

3/26/2024
As we head to Opening Day, we bring you our fantasy lineups, walk you through the whole Ohtani kerfuffle, and Optimist Patti enjoys her new nickname. Blake Snell finds a team at last, while Francisco Lindor and Edwin Diaz make a video showing their love for Puerto Rico. Optimist Patti makes a pro/con list for Peter Angelos. There are no winners. Our Police Blotter, in addition to a primer on MLB gambling rules for players and staff, highlights TB’s (not Tampa Bay’s) alternate Spring Training, and either a “Breach of Etiquette” or “dick move,” you pick. Pottymouth considers fake phone numbers as a way to swing access to breakfast baseball, and Patti explains Prospect Promotion Incentive in order to will Jackson Holliday into an early debut. While the rest of the sportsworld obsesses over brackets, Pottymouth crosstrains with the NBA. We say, “You anthropomorphized the jerseys,” “You get Short and Beer and I get Wisdom and Burger and its a party,” and “You just turned into a team owner at arbitration.” Fight the man, send your game balls to Meredith, get boosted, and find us on Twitter @ncibpodcast, on Facebook @nocryinginbball, Instagram @nocryinginbball and on the Interweb at nocryinginbball.com.

Fresh Like Milk, Aged Like Wine

3/19/2024
In a weakened moment of falling for Pottymouth logic, Patti agrees to a change in our fantasy team rules and we select pitchers from two teams instead of just one. Pottymouth shares her picks from the Mariners and Phillies, and Patti goes Dodgers/Orioles. We don’t think Josh Winckowski’s excuse will get you out of jury duty but it worked for him, sort of. What’s a “brace procedure” and why are we just hearing of this? The Rancho Cucamonga Quakes allow Pottymouth to teach us more Spanish vocabulary words. The Seoul Series brings us exhibition games, an early start to the regular season, cheerleaders, and an introduction to professional basketball player Mamiko Tanaka, who also happens to be married to that Shohei guy. We close with Nick Castellano’s milk or wine wisdom. We say “I appreciate a fellow Pottymouth when I see one,” “We’re shooting for the wine but we’re drinking the Blarney Stoned,” and “recovery periods vary by owner.” Fight the man, send your game balls to Meredith, get boosted, and find us on Twitter @ncibpodcast, on Facebook @nocryinginbball, Instagram @nocryinginbball and on the Interweb at nocryinginbball.com.

Smooth as Mayo

3/12/2024
In our last week of profiling position players, or “Adley Day” in Patti’s world, we pick our guys from the Os and ATL. For BAL, Ryan O’Hearn gets the Pottymouth nod with an extra point for Bull Durham, while Patti sticks with her once and forever catcher. For The Hammers, Patti picks spring training standout Eli White and Pottymouth corrects a wrong while selecting Orlando Arcia. Joey finds a home at home, bad boy Josh retires, Mookie heads to short, and Lance gets tossed from the dang bullpen. Punishments come down for the LVBP brawl, women “pave the way” in Road to the Show, and the proposed Vegas ballpark distracts everyone from complaining about pants. Watch the kids play in Spring Breakout! We say, “Distracted from pants by armadillos,” I hate it when things f*&k up my pickle,” and discuss condiments a surprising amount.

Kiké and Tony Clark dance around the idea of collusion, and let Fanatics take the lead on talking about pants. Robinson Canó heads to Mexico, Matt heads back to the Bay, and Brandon does what needs to be done. For Tampa Bay, Pottymouth completes her Lowe brothers set and Patti remembers the fun of the WBC and picks Paredes. Over at the Dodgers, Pottymouth goes with the flow and selects James Outman, while Patti chooses Diego Cartaya and his bodybuilder mom. Crosstraining Congratulations to Caitlin Clark for setting an NCAA scoring record, and cheers to Shohei for that whole getting married thing.

Marty Barrett, Ted Williams, and John Updike

2/27/2024
Nothing like an Adley HR against BOS the first day of spring training to spike co-host conflict, er, cause us to demonstrate how one should behave in civil society. Patti’s vocabulary lesson is “pillow contract” in the context of Belli and Tim. Hosmer retires leaving behind a range of feels. Tim Mayza’s fantasy league punishment may send our FBBL all sorts of questionable ways. It’s always a challenge to pick HOU bfs, but Pottymouth finds much to praise about Jake Meyer’s off-season mental focus and Patti wants to have a beer with Grae Kessinger’s grandfather. For the Brewers, Pottymouth selects Jackson Chourio, who finds a way to set an example even at his young age. Patti picks recent O, now Brewer, Joey Ortiz, and lies with exact figures about following his minor league career. There is so much to say about pants, from fashion to labor, to modesty concerns. Patti gets to hold Marty Barrett’s bat, and Pottymouth gets to keep it. We end with an excerpt from John Updike's essay about Ted Williams’ last game. Join us over at Patreon for a tag-team reading of the whole, beautiful tribute.

Frivolous February

2/20/2024
Spring training has begun, there are still key free agents out there, there’s some arbitration scorekeeping to do, and will it take all five years to get some women on the short list for the next commissioner of baseball? This week we talk boyfriends on the World Series champion Rangers – Jonah Heim for Pottymouth and Patti’s early claim on Evan Carter is confirmed. Over at the Phils, Pottymouth visits the Nick Castellanos school of buttons for her Johan Rojas selection, and Patti picks Bryson Stott and his mom. Huge news for women on and off the field as Jen Pawol umps in the Grapefruit League and Jenny Cavnar takes the primary play by play seat for the As. The mayor of Oakland plays hardball, and it turns out that record setting numbers of people will in fact pay to see talented women play hockey.

Surprisingly Little NFL Crosstraining

The Royals lock down Bobby Witt, Jr. for 11 years, and HOU says yes to Jose Altuve for another five. The arbitration scoreboard is currently tipped in the players’ direction at the halfway point, including a record-setting win for Vladdy. We wish Corey Kluber all the best in his retirement, Patti with much happier memories than those of Pottymouth. This week we look at Toronto, where Pottymouth selects Kevin Kiermaier with a really we haven’t picked him yet, and Patti highlights Davis Schnieder partly for getting to say “dirtbags” but mostly for the glove story. Happy birthday to ARI catcher and new Pottymouth pick Gabriel Moreno, and Patti’s aiming for the clouds outfielder, Alek Thomas. We discuss the comedy/tragedy possibilities with the new Netflix series following the Red Sox. Our police blotter features no work for Billy Eppler this year for playing fast and loose with the IL, and teachers keep on poking at the public funding for the A’s Vegas ballpark. Mayors of both Oakland and Las Vegas gang up on A’s ownership. The Serie de Caribe set more attendance records, featured a no-hitter, lots of pod favorites on the field and in the stands, and a championship to Venezuela.

Snow days are fun but they do not keep us from thinking about the boys of summer. It’s always tricky for us to pick our NYY bfs because of, well, general vitriol. But we persevere and end up disliking the team a little less. Pottymouth wants the team to give Oswaldo Cabrera a real shot, and Patti can’t help appreciating the deep fandom in Anthony Volpe’s family. For the Reds, Pottymouth goes for taller twin Elly de la Cruz, and Patti reads “DFA” and instead sees “Immaculate Grid” in Stuart Fairchild. Patron saint of the pod, Sean Doolittle, puts his big brain to work for the Nationals, and Dusty just can’t make retirement stick. The looking for a home As lead the Police Blotter with yet another complete dismissal of their fan base and find another team called the Bees to push around. The Cuban Professional Baseball Federation finds some exhibition games to play as politics bring an international tournament in Colombia to a stop, and winter ball heads to the finals. The Os open a state of the art academy in the Dominican Republic, calling it the most important accomplishment of the last several years. Hang on for the Hall of Fame reveal, and go, Ravens!
